Entry requirements

We usually ask for a good Honours degree in a relevant subject, or overseas equivalent. However, when considering your application, we look at your qualifications and work experience as well as your academic credentials. If your first degree is in an unrelated subject but you have relevant professional experience you may well be eligible for the course. For this reason, it is important to provide details of any current and/or previous employment in your application; it is always helpful to include a current CV but please complete the relevant sections of the application form as well.

Months of entry

February, April, July, September, December
